Food was great. Perfect because we had tickets to see Billy Joel and right across from madison square garden. Was well worth going. We def be going back.

The place was perfectly situated across from MSG. We were able to eat meal and appetizers within an hour to make it to the game on time. Very kid friendly. Meals were free with adult entree. Meat platters were FILLING!!! We had an appetizer but it was not needed. Sides were delicious!

As a person who grew up in Kansas City, I'm always searching for some decent barbecue. This one wasn't bad, especially for one sitting in a tourist area of New York City. Worth a stop.

I selected this restaurant because of its proximity to MSG. It worked out well to grab food and drinks at brother Jimmy’s and then head into the venue.

We made a reservation to make an event at MSG. While we were seated immediately, we waited about 25 minutes for a server to take our order. We didn’t raise the alarm because they were really busy. When a server saw we had not been taken care of yet, she took over graciously and made our experience end well. Food was better than when I ate there last year.

Food was really good. A few of the menu items online were discontinued so that was disappointing but overall I would recommend this place.

Reservation highly recommended on event night at MSG. Line for waiting and we we're seated right away due to our reservation. Definitely not an upscale ambiance, but it's not supposed to be. Food was excellent, waitress was awesome and helped push our order through because we told her we were headed to MSG for an event (hint, hint). Infrequent visitor to NYC, but will definitely be back anytime I go to MSG. Wife (Sloppy Jimmy sandwich) and son ( grilled Mac and cheese) also loved their meals.

Brought the grandkids to eat before seeing Elf at the Garden. Had no idea kids under 12 eat free - we booked it because of proximity to the show. Our sandwiches were great!

Great spot for pre MSG dinner. Staff super friendly. Salads are tremendous. Baby back ribs were delicious. Try the Brussels they were great.

We had a great meal before going to see Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden. The food was really tasty and arrived very promptly so we had no worries about being late. It was a good, lively atmosphere - perfect for the occasion.

The ribs, to die for and the spiced green beans.... yum I am hooked on this place! It was my first time there before a show at the garden because it was right by it. I will definitely come back again for more.
